Show and Tell

Today seemed a bit like "Show and Tell" at our house. My mom and sister were here for afternoon tea, and we each had something to show each other and talk about.

Mom came with several of her latest paintings:

We think this seagull belongs in a children's book:

Christina is nearly finished with her pair of socks. They look lovely, and very much like Spring! She came home from her trip to the Fiber Fair with a contraption to hold her sock and needles in place when she stuffs it into her knitting bag.

This was my contribution: a case for "double points". Christina wanted something stylish and practical for storing her double pointed knitting needles. This is what we came up with:

The case unzippers and opens flat to store a collection of needles. Christina took it home and filled it up and put pictures up on her blog.

And now I must get back to knitting myself. I haven't done much recently between getting hung up on my own socks (I have new needles now) and then being side-tracked trying to design the needle case. And besides, the weather is getting nicer and the outdoors is beckoning!

Your mom's paintings are beautiful. Your mom should just put a children's book of pictures together. I know I would buy something like that.
Your needle pouch was ingenious. How fun. I am so glad that you are up to having regular visitors. God is good.
